Who we are

CCDS started with six dedicated and skilful members with different professional backgrounds, such as health and social care, finance, childcare and IT. Each of the members are passionate about the project and are willing to put in their skills and knowledge into action, in planning, discharging the project, and monitoring to ensure the expected outcome is achieved. The project visionary is originally from the ‘Health and Social Care’ with over 26 years in practice and 14 years of working with people with dementia.

CCDS is a non-governmental and not-for-profit organisation. We operate based on Christian principles and values of love, respect, seeing someone as an individual rather than a group, controlled emotional involvement, freedom in the expression of ones feeling, acceptance of the individual, not being judgemental, and confidentiality.

Where it all began

Aramide Adegbenla is the visionary of Chief Cornerstone Dementia service. Her dream was to be an actress however, her passion for dementia started at the age of 17. At the point of writing her secondary school final examination, her grandmother had a stroke. In the environment where she grew up, there was no facility like a care home so the family had to take care of their elderlies. Due to her love for her grandmother she took a gap year in order to care for her.

Aramide was a petite young person caring for an overweight elderly with stroke. This made it a challenging day to day task for her. At this point, her 74 years old grandmother's memory began to deteriorate. Around that time, there was not much medical knowledge about dementia in Nigeria so there was less medical support for her. This made her health to deteriorate fast and she passed away after nine months. Following the death of her grandmother, Aramide said, "I could only remember the time for me as a standstill period which caused me to make a different decision". As a result of her experience in caring for her grandmother, she realised that there is more she could do to serve humanity, more so for people living with dementia. She found her purpose and started her journey of becoming an adult nurse.

 

 

   

Our Uniqueness

CCDS was able to carry out research on the needs of people living with dementia and identified that for this group to actually benefit from the service, the service needs to be accessible. We are happy to bring the service close to your reach. Also, it was identified that individual likes and dislikes are different. Some people like their privacy and the needs of such people are not met. CCDS is happy to bring the activity service to you in the comfort of your home.

We are made up of individuals from different backgrounds with years of experience, predominantly health and social care.
